Family feud

Melania is very angry at Ivana Trump for calling herself “The First Lady”

A spokeswoman for First Lady Melania Trump released a statement on Monday October 9, sharply criticizing Ivana Trump for referring to herself as the “first lady” during an interview.

Here’s the full statement:

“She plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell books. There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex. Unfortunately only attention seeking and self-serving noise.”

Earlier in the day, Ivana had jokingly called herself Trump’s “first lady” in a “Good Morning America” segment.

“I have the direct number to White House,” she said, “but I no really want to call him there because Melania is there.

“I don’t want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that because I’m basically first Trump wife.”

“I’m first lady, OK?”

And then she laughed.

According to The Hill, Ivana is promoting “Raising Trump,” a new memoir filled with stories about raising Trump’s children. We imagine it’s one part Erma Bombeck, one part The Omen.

Ivana and Trump married in 1977 and divorced in 1992. They had three children together: Eric, Ivanka, and Donald Trump Jr.

Trump married Melania in 2005 after divorcing Marla Maples.

      That’s very respectful of women. Coming from you, I’m not surprised

  • THAT Steve

      It’s not just you I thought exactly the same thing. A little to much surgery.

  • Bob LaBlah

    She was on CBS Sunday morning this past Sunday and I almost felt sorry for her. Personally I never thought she was as beautiful as she sure as hell thinks she was and still is. lol lol

  • arj

    ooooh, ooooh, ooooh BIATCH FIGHT!!!

  • blackhook

    Is there anything more bizarre than this white trash White House family?

    • stevetalbert

      And i remember when the Reagan kid fights seemed tabloid and billy carter was thought to be white trash. Maybe thats what MAGA means.

    • Jack Meoff

      LOL the Honey Boo Boo clan have got nothing on these clowns.

    Were I a lib, I too would be embarrassed that someone who looked like Michelle Obama was upstaged by the likes of Melania Trump, but I certainly wouldn’t attack her superior appearance with the Neanderthal tactics employed by those on the left (as is regularly evidenced on this site).

      Its really sad people like you can’t get over McCain/Palin’s loss to Obama. I was thinking just last night how during the campaign of 2008 Obama, a candidate, went to Germany and drew a crowd of over 150k people while the best John McCain could do two days later was an audience with that absolutely useless well kept freeloading so called god-king, the Dalai Lama. I’m willing to bet that god-king reaches for toilet paper like the rest of us when required, but thats a rant that I’ll save for the future.

    • ChrisK

      The difference was that Michele was with Barack because she wanted to be and it had nothing to do with $ since he had none at that point. These two it’s all about the $$. No comparison and easy to mock.

      LaBlah –
      WTF are you rambling about 2008 and the Dolly Llama for?

      Chrisk –
      No, the difference is that one is a stunningly beautiful immigrant who loves America while the other was a stunningly . . . well, we both know that if I were to state a detailed opinion of a liberal woman’s appearance or political agenda it would get me booted from this very-PC site, so I’ll just say that she was less than lovely or patriotic.
      My opinion, of course.

      What a shock, one of the anti-lgbt screenames doesn’t like the way black women look compared to white women.

      Oh, and additionally, how interesting that you Trump Troll-bots can’t find ANYTHING to defend him on other than to point out that the 71 year old guy has a wife you find attractive.

      So in other words, I guess Hugh Heffner would be your dream president.

      Looks are subjective and there is nothing wrong with Michele Obama’s appearance. She is a tall, strong, fit, intelligent and well educated woman. She and Barack Obama possess a moral compass, unlike the Trumps. I have no sympathy for Melania Trump, who has been shown to be a liar and hypocrite – not on the level of her husband, but enough to be distasteful.
      Some may prefer Melania’s appearance, and that’s fine but why insult Michelle Obama? And so you know, “beauty” fades…..

  • ejmac

    Screw both of these Eastern European gold diggers.
    And Ivana? Judy Jetson wore that hairdo better…

    • BennyP

      Amen! Euro Trash

  • OzJosh

    If you were to make a TV comedy called Clueless you couldn’t come up with a better set of characters than the Trump family.

  • captainburrito

    Just shows Melania does have much more emotional intelligence and class than Trump. Ivana wants a reaction for publicity and Melania gives it to her instead of ignoring it, laughing it off or being gracious.

  • He BGB

    If you watch the clip she was making a joke, or trying to. She was the first wife, the first lady. Melania should not have clapped back. Her husband must have made her or is teaching her his ways. Like the scientologists do, when someone criticizes them they attack the person with name calling and character asassination. Now Melania just helped her sell more books.

  • BennyP

    a topless hoochie mama as a first lady, who can forget that,

  • Frank Furter

    Both look like expensive hookers, one is the madam and the other one the wilting courtesan…meh
